Earlier in the week, visiting U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called for a ‘Two State Solution’ to the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. She made her statements when addressing the conference on Gaza held at the Egyptian border town of Sharma Sheikh.
All fine and good….. I personally have no problem with the ‘Two State Solution’, but I have a BIG problem with her meeting with Abbas and recognising him as the leader of the Palestinian people. It is Abbas that chose to leave his position as President when he pulled out of the coalition he shared with Hamas. It is Abbas, in collaboration with the State of Israel that is responsible for Gaza to be cut off from the rest of Palestine. It is Abbas that is responsible for the suffering endured by the million and a half Palestinians living in Gaza. Through his continued support and collaboration with the zionist regime, it is he that must take the blame for this suffering as much as the Israeli government.
